Former President Donald Trump turned 77 on Wednesday after his not guilty plea – after revealing that time was very much on his mind during his historic day in federal court.
“A birthday,” he grumbled during a brief stop at the Versailles restaurant in Miami. “We have a government that is out of control,” Trump fumed.
He had a second serenade after flying to his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, where he likes to spend the summer months. There were family members present – Trump acknowledged his son Eric Trump for his own setbacks in the justice system.
“What they did to my family – and to that young man right there. He’s responded to more subpoenas than any human being in the history of the world,’ Trump complained. ‘And you know what? … That literally means thousands of them,” Trump said.
A birthday song from a packed Bedminster crowd seemed to brighten Trump’s mood a bit.

“They say happy birthday, I was just with Eric and Lara and the kids…Happy Birthday Grandpa. I say oh great – I just got charged, they want about 400, if you add it all up. A false 400 years. Oh thank you darling, that’s nice. A wonderful birthday. And we’re going to make it the biggest birthday ever,’ Trump said.
